Florida's State Personnel Development Grant  

The goal of this proposed project is to scale up the state's efforts to recruit and retain highly qualified personnel that provide education and related services to children and youth with disabilities. The project will work with the existing system of the regional Personnel Development Partnerships so that local school districts have a single access point for all professional development planning and implementation for education and related services personnel. Existing programs will be scaled up, including the Para-to-Teacher Tuition Support Program, Induction and Mentoring Program, Virtual ESE Distance Learning Program, and Weekends with the Experts Program. A new program aimed at assisting special education teachers to become highly qualified will also be developed and implemented. Endorsement courses in Pre-K Handicapped, Autism, and Severe/Profound will be implemented as well, leading to an increase in the number of personnel serving students with these disabilities.
